    They're charging 50 bucks an hour around here and I thought that was super high. I realize I'm a tightwad, but I'd say 25 to 30 would be reasonable fair since you know the actual mechanic is lucky to get 15 of it.

    Just think, for 200.00 you could have bought a compression tester, spark tester, manual, rebuild kits for all your carbs and the fuel filter, and probably had change left over. Now I'm not saying a 6th grader could fix these outboard motors, buy I'd bet most 7th graders could.
